    Lingoes is the best multilingual dictionary for Windows and it’s FREE! Fabulous…

  3. I’ve been using Lingoes for a long time; I’m even the one who wrote its entry on, and uploaded its screenshots to, the ALTERNATIVETO.NET website. I’m a huge Lingoes fan. It is unquestionably best-of-breed of its type of product among freeware; and perhaps even when pitted against commercial software of its type. It’s really special; I simply could not more strongly recommend it; and I’m glad to see there has been another update. I confess that I was beginning — but only beginning, mind you — to wonder if maybe, just MAYBE, it had been abandoned. It didn’t actually think, yet, that it had; but I’m just sayin’.

    That said, whenever using at least the Chrome browser, there are now other free products (extensions/plug-ins) that do a quite credible job of performing essentially the same sort of function (or at least many of Lingoes’ functions)…

    …most notably, “Context Menu Search” (CMS)… (in the Chrome store)

    …which, once it’s configured right, and all the best cool stuff is added to it, is every bit as easy to use as Lingoes when in the browser; and, in fact, because Lingoes is sometimes squirrely in Chrome (and most certainly in non-Chrom, but Chromium-based browsers), CMS is kinda’ almost better than Lingoes.

    Of course, Lingoes isn’t just for use in the browser; and is cable of tons of other cool stuff, so I’m not suggesting that CMS could substitute for Lingoes on every level. However, for the most common stuff, honestly, CMS is just about as good, all things considered.

    Because I got tired of messing with Lingoes in updates (or wondering if there would ever be anymore updates at some points); and also because, seriously, the Lingoes plug-in for Chromium-based browsers just doesn’t always work, I confess that while I have Lingoes sitting right in my System Tray… see it? It’s right there! I kinda’ almost use CMS more, now.

    Still, though, again: Lingoes! Great stuff! It jus’ don’ get no bettern’ ‘at!

  4. Help me understand what you mean, Chulwoo.

    Are you saying that Lingoes’s maker needs to develop an easy-to-use dictionary-making utility?

    Or are you saying that you’re looking for someone to create a Lingoes dictionary for you?
